Bolangir: A WESCO accountant, Bibhuti Sankar Bindhani, came under the scanner of the Vigilance sleuths after the latter conducted a raid at his residence and recovered Rs 16 lakh cash and a gold biscuit.

The raids and calculation of the total value of his movable and immovable assets are underway.

Meanwhile, upon being questioned about the huge amount of cash, Bibhuti said that nearly Rs 14 lakh of the amount belonged to his sister-in-law. He also refuted all the allegations and claimed that he does not possess assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
